The Big Bang Theory spinoff, Young Sheldon, has now been given a full season order of 22 episodes, according to THR. The show focuses on the young life of the brilliant and socially awkward scientist, Sheldon Cooper. The order for a full season came down rather quickly as it happened just a couple days after the show’s first episode aired.

Through this new series, viewers will now get a look into what makes Sheldon, Sheldon. A classic fish out of water story in Sheldon’s scientific mind clashes with his religious upbringing, and while one would think a mind like Sheldon’s would make life easier on a person, such is not the case for young Sheldon Cooper.

Sheldon’s social naivety throughout the run of The Big Bang Theory has been the main source of the show’s humor, and it will likely be the same on Young Sheldon. Jim Parsons, the actor who portrays Sheldon, actually came up with the idea for the show and will provide his voice as a narrator for the series. The show’s first episode was watched by over 17 million people (surely with some help of The Big Bang Theory lead in).

While there are occasional life lessons learned on The Big Bang Theory, I think viewers are probably in for some emotional tugs on the heartstrings as life will be even more difficult for a younger Sheldon than it is for his adult self. Growing up is hard enough as it is, add in Sheldon’s idiosyncrasies with children’s potential to be cruel and that can make for a rough upbringing.

The show stars Iain Armitage in the role of a young Sheldon Cooper along with Zoe Perry as Sheldon’s mother, who is the real life daughter of actress Laurie Metcalf, who plays his mother on The Big Bang Theory, which is now in its 11th season.

Young Sheldon returns to CBS November 2.

    You know that shit show that’s pretty generic and mediocre? Here’s a prequel to it! Even more generic and shitty!

    I don’t think that’s what their pitch was….

    BBT was a guilty pleasure for a while, and then it was a guilty meh for a while, and last year I was actually disappointed that it was continuing two more years.

    I DVRed “Young Sheldon” but I haven’t watched it yet. Probably won’t.

    “The Good Place” though. Now that show is killing it.


      The Good Place!!!

      Rewatched the full first season before the second season premiered, it holds up so well!

      You can truly see the through line where Michael and all of the other (secretly Bad Place) characters only act a certain way, when one of the four is around, so you can clearly see from the get-go that it is a set up, and it works so well when you rewatch the whole thing.

      The two-part season premier was pretty darn good, the third episode where they repeat the reset hundreds of times while wearing Michael down and some heading off to the Medium Place and then coming to the realization that they need to bully or work with Michael, a modern classic! Writing deserves an Emmy for this episode.

      Also, loved simply loved (not a phrase I use very often in life) Michael having to shut down Janet multiple times, but her using her ‘fail safe’ pleading for her life.

      So cringy, but so hilarious!
